You Are Big. I Am Small.

lion

You have exhausted me
I am a shell of a man
Enduring your endless
Boasts and hyperbole

You are not unique
I’ve suffered many
Like you before
Chest bowing crowing

I wonder what
Tragic event unfolded
To make you like this
What great legend speaks

I don’t understand
The need the want
Of a hole that
You must endlessly fill

You do have my pity
As I groan under my breath
Pausing to let you tell
Another moronic story

Sympathetic, yes
After all we are friends
And I am a man of
Honor and patience

But there are times
When I cannot help
But feel that you are as small
As you make yourself big

That comforts me
Gives me the strength
To fight at your side
Against the maws of the beast

Seeing you as less than
Makes you tolerable
But I cannot help but wonder
If it makes me egotistical instead.
